These cranberry walnut power balls are easy to make with healthy ingredients and no refined sugar.


Units Scale
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (or another dried fruit like raisins, cherries or goji berries)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or other nuts or seeds)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or cacao nibs
  • 1 cup peanut butter or nut butter
  • 1/23/4 cup honey
  • 1/41/2 cup coconut oil, unrefined
  • coconut flakes, unsweetened, to coat the balls


  1. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients except coconut flakes. Mix well.
  2. Add honey, coconut oil and peanut butter. Mix thoroughly.

“Quickie” option

  1. Sprinkle enough coconut into a 9″x9″ glass pan to cover the bottom of the pan so the bars lift out easily. Press the mixture into the pan, refrigerate for a few hours, then slice into squares.

“Normal” option

  1. If you have more time, roll the mix into balls roughly 1 inch in diameter, and then roll the balls in the coconut flakes to coat. This will make them less sticky.
  2. Place in a sealed container in the refrigerator for a few hours to firm up. Store in the refrigerator.


Makes around 35-40 1-inch balls/squares.
